ABSTRACT

Introduction: Congenital syphilis, which is an infectious disease, is transmitted to the newborn by an infected mother during pregnancy and primarily caused by the microorganism Treponema pallidum. Late congenital syphilis is a very infrequent clinical finding acknowledged 2 or more years after birth, and its early diagnosis and treatment are necessary.

Case report: This case report highlights a case of late congenital syphilis presenting itself with mulberry molars at an age of 12 years. The present clinical findings, the medical history, and reports given at the time of birth are indicative of the disease.

Conclusion: Thus, the case report highlights the fact that dentists should be well versed with the systemic conditions and its dental implications for the right treatment of the disease.

Keywords: Congenital syphilis, Dental manifestations, Mulberry molars.
